Square Enix confirmed that even though Final Fantasy Explorers is a Nintendo 3DS game, it will not utilize the system’s hardware to output stereoscopic 3D graphics. The Tokyo Game Show demo, which Siliconera played didn’t have stereoscopic 3D graphics either.
The game is compatible with the Circle Pad Pro accessory, which adds a second analog stick on the right side of a regular Nintendo 3DS.
Final Fantasy Explorers is also one of the first games to make use of the extra buttons on the New Nintendo 3DS. Players will be able to control the camera using the C-stick. The ZL button is for monster lock-on and the ZR button is for summon monster lock-on.
Final Fantasy Explorers comes out on December 18 in Japan.
